Truck Route for Solid Waste Facility Through the Borough of Far Hills
A Solid Waste Transfer Station and Material Recovery Facility to be located in the Borough of Bernardsville will send daily tractor trailer and dump truck traffic through Far Hills. The truck route would utilize Route 202, through Far Hills, to travel to and from the facility located in Bernardsville.
It is estimated that there would be 4 large tractor trailer trucks and approximately 25 to 30 dump trucks traveling through Far Hills on a daily basis on route to and from the facility.
The Mayor and Borough Council have been vehemently opposing this truck route and are requesting support from our residents to reach out to each of the Somerset County Commissioners to oppose the truck route which would effectively direct all traffic through the heart of Far Hills. A sample letter has been prepared for your convenience.
The Borough Council has been informed that Somerset County has administratively authorized a route along Route 202 for the truck traffic to and from the facility. A revised sample letter has been prepared to contact the Somerset County Commissioners.
